After an MVP season, Aaron Rodgers reportedly wants to move on from the Green Bay Packers. ESPN’s Adam Schefter just tweeted moments ago that the Packers quarterback is “so disgruntled with the Green Bay Packers that he has told some within the organization that he does not want to return to the team.”
Boy, that escalated quickly.

We knew Aaron Rodgers was at least somewhat unhappy with the Packers after they drafted quarterback Jordan Love in the first round last year, but it seemed cooler heads prevailed.
Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst had this to say:
“As we’ve stated since the season ended, we are committed to Aaron in 2021 and beyond,” he said. “Aaron has been a vital part of our success, and we look forward to competing for another championship with him leading our team.”
The San Francisco 49ers reportedly called the Packers Wednesday night attempting to work a trade for Rodgers. They were willing to part with the No. 3 overall pick in tonight’s draft and that offer probably just became more enticing. Is it possible Aaron Rodgers finally gets his long overdue call from the 49ers on draft day?
Maybe. And if he does — we just witnessed the birth of an NFC favorite, and it’s not crazy to believe they surpass Kansas City. Scary Hours.
